A glass box then appears with two rabbits inside, with a poster on the wall behind it reading&nbsp;<em style="padding: 0px; margin: 0px;">The Almighty Wind Brigade</em>&nbsp;(<em style="padding: 0px; margin: 0px;">Kateebat A Reeh Al Sarsar</em>). A person wearing a lab mask then mixes chemicals in a beaker in the glass box, and we see some gas emitting from the beaker. About a minute later, the rabbits start to have random convulsions and then die. The person says:<em style="padding: 0px; margin: 0px;">You saw what happened? This will be your fate, you infidel Alawites, I swear by ALLAH to make you die like these rabbits, one minute only after you inhale the gas</em>.</em></p><p style="padding: 5px 0px; margin: 0px; color: #14455a; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 11px; line-height: 14px;"><em>Judging from the rabbits’ reaction, the gas must be a nerve agent. The number of containers, if not a bluff, indicates ability to produce a considerable amount of this gas. Deployment could be by means of a smoke generator placed in the target area, an explosion, possibly a suicide one, of a ”chemmed” car, or simply by using a humidifier.</em></p><p style="padding: 5px 0px; margin: 0px; color: #14455a; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 11px; line-height: 14px;">(h/t <a href="http://weaselzippers.us/2012/12/06/video-shows-syrian-islamist-rebels-t… Zippers</a>)</p><p>&nbsp;</p>
